1 There's a pardon full and sweet,
'Tis for you, 'tis for me;
Blessed rest at Jesus' feet,
'Tis for you and me.

All for you, if you believe,
If salvation you'll receive;
There's a welcome, warm and true,
All for you, all for me.

2 There's a help for ev'ry day,
'Tis for you, 'tis for me;
Joy and blessing by the way,
'Tis for you and me. [Chorus]

3 There's a robe of snowy white
'Tis for you, 'tis for me;
There's a home of glory bright,
'Tis for you and me. [Chorus]
